Wire Processing & Process Monitoring Products

Process Monitoring

PBT™ Custom

  • Custom configured as an integral component of the machine
Highly Sensitive
  • Configurable force range determined by application
  • Provides a high resolution signature for superior defect detection
  • More sensitive than quartz or piezoelectric sensors
True “Plug and Play”
  • The PBT sensor can be designed as a substitute machine component
  • Proven to be stable and reliable in challenging production environments
No More Shunting Effects
  • Overcomes the limitations of conventional sensors including the condition of edge loading, overloading and shunting
  • Shunting occurs when forces bypass (or are transferred in parallel to) the sensor and proceed into the base of the press.
  • Shunting negatively impacts process monitor effectiveness and this is a risk when using mechanically mounted sensors
Developed & Patented by OES
  • PBT technology has been developed by OES
  • PBT sensors work exclusively with the ForceWorx and ForceCapture line of process monitors
